The Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology (AEPC) will hold its annual meeting from May 15 to 18 at the Palace of Exhibitions and Congresses of Seville (FIBES).
The AEPC was founded in Lyon in 1963 and subsequently created a network of specialists committed to the practice and advancement of congenital cardiology and closely related fields.
The largest global association democratically administered in the field of congenital cardiology is formed by 1060 paediatric cardiologists and other specialists with members from all continents. Its objective is to improve collaboration among members for scientific research and professional development and maintain high standards of professional practice.
The activities of the AEPC are organized by the working groups that represent the different subspecialties and specific areas of paediatric and congenital cardiology. Over the years, 10 Working Groups have been created, the AaGUCH Task Force (grown-up with congenital heart disease) and a group for Junior fellows in Training.
The AEPC organizes an annual meeting and an update-on course in the third week of May in collaboration with one of the member countries.
There will be a broad simultaneous exhibition that will provide a visual approach and interaction with the sessions of the Congress. The breaks will be made in the exhibition area. There will also be symposia and additional courses.

- Advances in genetics, embryology and basic science
